Not For Profit - Accounting and Auditing Services

 

The term 'Not for Profit' includes organisations spanning multiple sectors and community interests. Each group has distinct goals and is structured differently. However, all share the same responsibilities to manage their accounts accurately and report end of year financial information to the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission (ACNC).

Going beyond these formal standards, organisations have further responsibilities to the community. Not for Profits need to prove financial accountability to meet transparency expectations. Without structures in place to demonstrate reliable accounting practices, charity organisations will not get the community support they need to succeed.

Juggling these requirements can be challenging. But peace of mind is achievable with the help of DFK Crosbie.
 


Why is accounting and auditing for Not for Profit organisations essential?

Accounting

Not for Profit accountants should manage your organisation’s accounting practices as they would any other enterprise’s to ensure the highest standards are met. This insight starts with addressing common reporting mistakes made by Not for Profits like:

  • Miscalculating key figures in the annual information statement.
  • Incorrectly reporting unrelated financial information about the charity.
  • Failing to reference key legislation such as the ACNC Act and other mandatory accounting standards in financial reports.


DFK Crosbie’s accounting team will help you with all of your reporting requirements including regular management of financial information and maintaining tax records. But we go beyond these basics tasks to recommended key changes to your Not For Profit that could lead to real improvements, now and into the future. Specialist interpretation of your business’ cucial accounting data helps to tell a story about how you stand and the possibilities ahead with strategic guidance and savvy financial decisions.

 

Auditing

Medium-to-large sized Not for Profits are required to submit financial reports that have been reviewed or audited by a registered professional.
